Visit the self-proclaimed “World’s Most Famous Beach” with a stay at the Holiday Inn & Suites Daytona Beach on the Ocean, conveniently parked oceanside along the famed 23-mile beach.
Get the full Daytona experience by skipping the parking lot and driving straight onto Daytona’s white sand beach, packed with cars in the buzzing summer months. As the country’s mecca for auto racing, it seems only fitting that cars are allowed on the beach—a tradition that started in the 1900s when locals figured out the unique, hard-packed sand was perfect for auto-racing.
Walk 30 minutes along the beach (or drive five minutes) to Daytona’s bustling Main Street Pier, which boasts the longest wooden pier on the East Coast and is accompanied by all of the expected seaside shops, attractions and yummy fried-dough fare.
Guests needing a break from the sun can drive less than 15 minutes inland to the Daytona International Speedway.
After an adrenaline-packed afternoon at the speedway, drive back to the hotel to dine alfresco at the on-site restaurant, where kids 11 and under eat free. Clean, comfortable rooms await upstairs, complete with a microwaves and refrigerators to accommodate beach snacks and refreshments.
